They may look tough and brag about their perpetually dry tear ducts, but guys aren’t immune to mental health crises. The sad truth is that men are four times more likely to kill themselves than women and those between 25 and 64 account for the bulk of suicides in the U.S.
You don't have to be a dude to appreciate Dr. Rich Mahogany's snarky approach to therapy. Designed as a resource to help men deal with any problem that life sends their way, Man Therapy puts a fun spin on "Gentlemental Health" and isn't afraid to tackle tough topics like depression, anxiety, and suicide.
Whatever makes it hard for guys to ask for directions also seems to make them wary of getting mental health care when they need it. But they have been finding their way to Man Therapy. Since the site launch in 2012, almost more than 85K have taken the “Head Inspection,” and more than half of those guys said that good old Dr. Rich Mahogany has made them more likely to get help. (You can subtly set a guy on the right direction by sending him a Man Therapy E-Card.)
It's rare to see mental health tackled with humor, and the more campaigns that talk to people in a non-clinical way, the better off we will all be. Kudos to the Colorado Office of Suicide Prevention, Carson J Spencer Foundation and Cactus.
